Build it and they will come.
There is a little triangle of land surrounded by Jefferson Ave, E. Clay Street, and N. 23rd Street. 3HC, the junior board of The Better Housing Coalition has come up with the beautiful idea of turning that unused land into a tiny oasis in the urban landscape. The Enrichmond Foundation and Friends of Jefferson Park are on board and they’ve launched a website that includes details on a contest on what the park should become.
Entries will address community input, shared community space, fiscal responsibility, low maintenance design, history, aesthetics, and environmental sustainability.
Entries will be judged by a local jury consisting of designers, artists, and civic leaders. The entry that best addresses the four points in the Considerations and Context Section will be awarded a cash prize of $500.
Entry Deadline: October 17, 2014
I’m thinking a lovely picnic area so I can chow down on my Alamo brisket in a nicer setting.
